Jesse Eisenberg's new play The Revisionist has extended at off-Broadway’s Cherry Lane Theatre through April 21. The Rattlestick Playwright Theatre's production, starring Eisenberg and Tony winner Vanessa Redgrave, opened on February 28 and was initially set to close on March 31.
Directed by Kip Fagan, The Revisionist tells the story of David (Eisenberg), who travels to Poland as he struggles with writer’s block. His 75-year-old cousin Maria (Redgrave) invites him to stay with him in hopes of connecting with her distant American family. As they bond, Maria reveals details about her difficult post-war life, testing what both cousins think it means to be a family. The play also features Dan Oreskes.
The Revisionist features scenic design by John McDermott, costume design by Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Matt Frey, sound design by Bart Fasbender and property design by Andrew Diaz.
